Welsh Love Spoons 

Lo: To attempt to use art resources with a simple technique shown to them. 

Lets explore the rich Welsh tradition of carving love spoons and make our own unique designs using clay. 

Welsh love spoons are traditional spoons carved from one piece of wood by young men, often sailors on sea voyages, to give to a woman as a romantic gift.

Originally they were cawl spoons, that once carved had no practical use so became items for display. Over time the symbols on the spoon came to have meanings; for example, a horseshoe for luck, a diamond for wealth and good fortune and an anchor for security and a wish to settle down.
